Like an Einar Jolin Painting

Do you know the beautiful works by Swedish modernist Einar Jolin?

According to the nickname “Elegant Einar”, it was his signature look to create reduced compositions and to cover his motifs with layers of pastel tones. Especially his cityscape paintings of inner Stockholm aroused my interest – they’re painterly complex and simplistically beautiful at the same time. Einar Jolin’s city motifs such as the undated work Stockholm från Söder are painted from a bird’s eye view and offer a so-to-speak calmed version of the industrialised modern city. The usually vivid veins of the city – trains and streets with bustling activity – seem to turn into aesthetically emptied and geometrised patterns.

Somehow, our photographs of Stockholm from last week made me feel like being part of such a Jolin painting that dates back to modernist aesthetics and that is still yet to come. The pastel-coloured skyline of buildings at Stockholm’s waterside are simply captivating in their very own fashion.

    Toller Look 🙂
    Die Stadt ist natürlich auch wunderschön, da bekomme ich gleich Fernweh. Man müsste sich viel mehr Zeit nehmen können um andere Städte und Länder entdecken zu können.
